Stephem Moyer dishes little known “True Blood”-related trivia and secrets behind Punk Bill

By now, most fans of “True Blood” know a few details regarding the personal lives of the show’s stars – like how Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are married. But the show is actually filled with dozens of more quiet references to the stars, details Access Hollywood uncovered at Comic-Con.

For starters, in Episode 2, which aired on the HBO drama just a few weeks ago, the scene that sees Stephen’s character, Bill, in a flashback in time, set in London in the early 1980s, was inspired by the Essex-bred star’s own life.

The episode featured Stephen, with spiky, Sid Vicious style hair, and a leather jacket, hanging out with punk rockers.

“I had a sort of a punk leaning. I was more of a mod,” Stephen explained. “Actually, 1982, I was into The Jam. I was bit young for The Jam, but I just followed them obsessively. But it was really great. And I live very near Camden when I’m in London and that’s set in Camden.”
